This tutorial is part of the effects series for PowerPoint 2007. We already showed you how you can apply a shadow effect, and tweak shadow options. In this tutorial, we'll show you how you can quickly add a reflection to a shape.

Note: Although you can add both a shadow and Reflection Effect to any object in PowerPoint 2007 or higher versions, it's good to use just one of these two effects.

Follow these steps to apply Reflection Effects to a shape in PowerPoint 2007 for Windows:
